Command and Utility Reference : NSCONFIG


Displays the property settings associated with a NameServer configuration and checks that the syntax and values are valid. The NSCONFIG utility runs locally on the machine where the AdminService is running. The utility does not run across the network.


Operating system
nsconfig [
[[ -name name-server]
[ -propfile path-to-properties-file]
[ -validate ]
]| -help ]
-name name-server
Specifies which existing NameServer configuration to examine. The name must match the name of an existing NameServer configuration in the specified properties file. If you do not specify a NameServer, the NSCONFIG utility analyzes all NameServer configurations defined in the properties file specified by the -propfile parameter.
-propfile path-to-properties-file
Specifies a filename or pathname to a file that contains the property settings to be validated, for example, If a filename or pathname is not specified, it defaults to the installation version of the file, such as:
*install-path \properties\ in Windows
*install-path /properties/ on UNIX
Checks the syntax and values of property settings defined in the specified properties file.
Displays command-line help.


*Never needed if you always use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.
*A single NameServer can simultaneously support all of the AppServer, WebSpeed, and DataServer products using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.
